Review by Library Journal Reviews

Shore (Half Yard Gifts) continues her quest to help crafters use up their fabric stash with her latest book, which focuses on Christmas decor. The projects are arranged by style (e.g., Scandinavian, traditional, rustic, contemporary) and include a variety of items, such as a burlap-and-linen Advent calendar, a no-sew holiday wreath made of scrap fabric, a variety of ornaments, gift boxes and bags, and placemats. Shore's directions are easy to follow, and key steps are illustrated with photographs to provide additional guidance. Most of the projects can be completed in a short time, making them ideal for last-minute gift giving. VERDICT There's a pleasant variety of styles in this collection, and crafters with a taste for homespun or rustic design will find many of the projects especially appealing. [Page 90].
